    Detailed Description

    This cmdlet creates a new WAN accelerator.

    WAN accelerator is an architecture component that optimizes file transfer via WAN by means of data deduplication. The role of a WAN accelerator can be assigned to a dedicated Windows-based machine (physical or virtual). For best performance you should set a WAN accelerator on both source and target sides.

    Example 1

    This command creates a new WAN accelerator on the Veeam backup server:

    • The Veeam backup server is obtained with Get-VBRLocalhost and piped down.
    • The description of the new WAN accelerator is "WAN Accelerator 01".
    • The folder path where the new WAN accelerator will be created is c:\WAN.
    • The cache size capacity is set to 100GB.

    Get-VBRLocalhost | Add-VBRWANAccelerator -Description "WAN Accelerator 01" -CachePath "c:\WAN" -CacheSize 100 -CacheSizeUnit GB

    Example 2
